It’s been an exciting couple of months, firstly with the arrival of my beautiful baby daughter Matilda Rose Bonner, weighing 7lb 4oz on August 22 at the Tweed Heads Base Hospital.


My partner Paul Bonner and myself can’t believe we have such a gorgeous little girl while big brothers Jake, Keaton and sister Luka have welcomed our bundle of joy. Matilda is growing quickly and is very healthy. 


My brother Douglas’partner Liz also gave birth to his fifth child, Fuschia Monroe on August 1 and my sister Christina, former Miss Philippines-Australia gave birth to her first child, a boy Kohen Salter on October 11.


The Cruzado family has much to celebrate and gathered for an annual family reunion over the October long weekend at Terrigal in memory of my father, the late Pete Cruzado.


Each year, we gather to remember a loving man with a golf game and the winner of The Pete Cruzado Memorial Cup was nephew Mitchell Greenhill, 2nd place to John Cruzado and 3rd place went to Killian Duncan.


During a visit to Sydney, we attended the 13th birthday of niece Jerri Cruzado in their Glenmore Park home with three newborn cousins attending their first party.


We also visited my Uncle Adolfo and Aunt Marietta Cruzado of Wentworthville.


Over the past 12 years they have been heavily involved with the PhilAus Country Club which was recently deregistered.


The group donated $5000 to the St Ezekiel Moreno Nursing Home and Hostel run by the Augustinian Recollect Sisters at Croyden.


Other recipients included The Salvation Army and the Westmead Millenium Research facility.


The voluntary organisation would like to thank all those who supported the various fundraising activities over the years.


Closer to home, having only moved to Tweed Heads in March, I recently met some members of the Tweed Filipino community and there is an annual Christmas party at the Tweed Head Bowls Club on December 8.


More details in the next issue. Til then, wishing all uni students including my son Jake, a good break from their studies.  God bless, Patricia
